It did work on my Windows 10, Office 2016 machine. It seems we haven't quite solved the mystery yet if it doesn't work on some others. I don't have enough machines in my lab to narrow this down but I will take a look when I have some time.
@Jean-Marc this integration is simply a shortcut to open Dropbox to save files faster. What you are looking for is file lock notification which is much more complicated to implement. I believe at this time only OneDrive/Sharepoint supports that integration. In Dropbox you may get duplicate files though perhaps the "badge" integration with Office does support something there I just don't have a large enough org to have multiple people stepping on each others files to know how well that works out myself.
@Andrew. That is exactly what I am looking for. I love having Dropbox as a place. But there is a workaround for that. I would really like to replace OneDrive with Dropbox for all collaboration. Shared editing of Word documents is so powerful that I am even willing to put up with the pain of using OneDrive.
I thought that Google Drive supports shared editing of Microsoft Office documents, but I'm not finding the information right now.
@Lars, the first script indeed worked for me. The later one didn't. Thank you very much.
I have Office 2016 64-bits, installed from an Office 365 Business download.
Perhaps it is too much to ask, but I would like two Dropbox places. One for my personal dropbox folder and one for my companies dropbox folder.
